2018 Co-tenancy Statute Showing Changes from Current Law

The “enrolled” version of HB 4268 is the final version of the bill with the text that will be placed in code books but it does not show the changes to the law made by the 2018 co-tenancy statute. After the bill passed the House, the Senate only amended the title, not the body of the substance of the bill itself. The version of the “engrossed committee substitute” below underscores new code language, strikes through deleted language, with a table of contents. It does not have the amended “title”.
